For the last few months, almost 40 children across KS2 have been preparing for this year’s Young Voices event at the Genting Arena, Birmingham. Last Wednesday, along with over 6,000 other children, the children took part in that concert and were mind-blowing!! They sang beautifully, represented our school amazingly and impeccably and were an absolute credit to our school! The children sung classics such as “Birdhouse In Your Soul”, “You’re the Voice” and “Hello”, modern songs such as “Seven Years” and “Pop Medley” and even sung in Zulu and Welsh (and yes I’m biased but that was stunningly beautiful and brought goose bumps out on my arms!!).
The children also got to see top acts perform such as Tabby Callaghan (X Factor), Natalie Williams (Soul/Jazz performer) and everyone’s favourite Street Dance Crew Urban Strydes with Andy Instone (if you’ve seen the videos, then you’ll know!!)!! The children were wowed by the skills of the Beat Box Collective and their ability to make amazing music with just their voices!!
It truly was a memorable experience which the children will always remember! A huge thank you to Mrs Trevelyan for once again for organising the event (we’re already signed up for next year!), to Miss Carr, Mrs DeMarco and Mrs Cartwright for accompanying the children on the day and of course to all the family members and friends who supported the children on the night (including myself, Mrs Shaw and Mrs Mitchell!). Finally, a huge thank you to FOMS who provided the coach and also subsidised the cost of the T-Shirts.
If you were unable to go on the night, or if you did but simply would like to see it again (!), the children will be putting on a special performance for families on Friday 10th February at 2pm. We welcome all families and friends of the children who took part in the Young Voices Experience!
